I stayed here for 9 days and I have to say the Hotel is in a great location at Gate 15 of the Haram. The Hotel has good service and clean facilities. The only downfall was the poor Wifi in the hotel and the lifts system. I spent 15minutes once waiting for a lift.

The hotel is good and staff is cooperative. Rooms are clean, spacious and some rooms comes with Haram view. Bathroom is average comes with a tub. Breakfast is not bad but can be improved. WiFi: Free WiFi available in the lobby. Location: Excellent, just next to gate 15 of Haram. Restaurants: The whole area is surrounded by restaurants and shops

A basic, clean hotel with tired interiors. We were there a week before hajj. The hotel is perfectly located to Masjid al nabawi and the azan wakes you up just perfectly. There are plenty of shopping options nearby with a few malls within 2 mins walk. We had separate catering provided for by our provider and the food was ok....

I have been to Elaf Taiba twice. I found it to be a good hotel. The most important point is that it is located just opposite Masjid E Nabwi. Walk out of the hotel-Cross the Road.. and enter the masjid. The rooms are spacious and the lobby is well made as well. You have to wait for the elevators when...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Good location. Able to get to mosque comfortably after hearing azan. Free wifi in lobby. Rooms and decor are a bit dated. Bathrooms look tired. Linen was clean. AC worked fine. Reception staff helpful and friendly. Good value for money eg 400SR for triple room per night in early ramadan.

Other than the room interiors being very old and dingy the hotel is acceptable on all other counts such as proximity to the masjid al nabawi, housekeeping, courteous staff, but surely the interiors need to be overhauled. Stayed there for a week and had a very pleasant stay. In sha ALLAH would not mind staying here again. Free wi fi...

This is a great simple hotel. Right outside of the Haram. The rooms were spacious and bathroom decent. Only thing to note is that the elevators get jammed sometimes because of everyone trying to get to the Haram at once, so leave before the Adhan so you're not stuck waiting or taking the stairs.
